A Deep Look At Kate Walker's New Journey

about X hours ago from

The adventure genre has been around since the early days of the game industry, but with studios like Telltale repopularizing the genre, we're seeing new adventure games pop up more frequently than ever. The Syberia franchise has been dormant for over a decade, but publisher Microids is working with artist and developer Benoît Sokal, Koalabs Studio, 3DDUO, and Kiloton to bring the franchise into the modern age with Syberia 3, which is now scheduled to launch on December 1.

With Syberia 2 acting as a continuation and conclusion of the narrative that began in the first game, Syberia 3 begins a new arc for series protagonist Kate Walker. This means players that missed the first two entries are able to use Syberia 3 as a jumping-on point with minimal confusion. Syberia 3 represents the first time the series is being rendered in full 3D, giving it a more modern look than either of the first two, mostly pre-rendered Syberia games.

The story begins with Kate Walker stranding and in dire need of assistance before the Youkol people save her from certain death. Kate and the Youkol have common enemies, so she decides to assist them with their strange ritual of escorting snow ostriches to their reproduction grounds.

Get To Know Poe In New Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens Character Trailer

about X hours ago from

Poe Dameron is one of the best pilots in the whole Resistance – or at least that's what everyone keeps saying in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You'll get a chance to put his skills to the test in the Lego adaptation of the film, as you can see in a new trailer for the game.

The clip shows some space combat, as well as a few lines of new dialogue recorded by actor Oscar Isaac. He's just one of the cast members who have lent their talents to the game. It's an interesting split from TT Games' past Lego titles, which have relied on pantomime, lines pulled straight from the source, or new recordings from soundalikes to tell their stories.

27 Ways Madden NFL 17 Wants To Fix Money Plays, Ratings & More

27 Ways Madden NFL 17 Wants To Fix Money Plays, Ratings & More

Madden NFL 17 recently unveiled some of its first details, and while a new sheen for the series' franchise mode was touted, the development team at EA Tiburon also has gameplay in its sights. This includes attempts to fix some long-standing gripes from fans.

MONEY PLAYSMoney plays – those ones that people spam over and over to near-guaranteed success – are the bane of any sports title, and Madden has its share. But Madden 17 has lofty aims to eliminate those. "What we would like to believe we have built is a defensive counter to every single offensive concept that exists in Madden,"says creative director Rex Dickson.

A new section of the playcalling menu called Run/Pass Counters lets you pick areas of the field where you're getting beat. Someone keeps dinging you with RB passes to the flat? Go to Run/Pass Counters>Pass Counters>Short Passes Outside. This brings you to the new zones like a Cover 2 Hard Flat where the linebacker matches the player going out to that area of the field. If you commit to the flat you can get burned elsewhere, so you still have to anticipate your opponent's moves and call the right plays.

The follow-up to the 2011 Kaos Studios and THQ game Homefront launches today and to celebrate, Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver have released a new trailer to give prospective players an idea of what's at stake in Homefront: The Revolution. The game serves as a reboot to the IP, delivering a different take on the story, as well as a distinct open-world structure. Set in an alternate-timeline version of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the shooter is said to deliver a single-player campaign that can last around 30 hours.

We also learned more about what is included in the Expansion Pass. Those who purchase the Expansion Pass will have access to three separate single-player campaign expansions, as well as exclusive bonuses for the game's co-op mode, The Resistance. The first two single-player expansions are called The Voice of Freedom and Aftermath. Both of those are scheduled to release sometime in 2016 and will add new districts and hours of content to the single-player campaign. The third expansion included in the pack, Beyond the Walls, is said to be significantly larger than the first two expansions and will release in 2017.
